Applications are the lifeblood of any enterprise, supporting every aspect of how business is planned,
managed and executed. As enterprises face the need to rapidly respond to customer requirements and
competitive issues, these applications come under increasing pressure to support the business,
do more for less, and deliver business value. Increasingly complex and integrated application portfolios,
high maintenance costs, and scarce applications support skills can significantly distract attention from

Globalization of markets, fluctuations in world economy, diversification in services, mergers, acquisitions and industry deregulation are but a few of the challenges faced by companies today. Companies are quickly realizing that to thrive in today's competitive business environment, they must rapidly deploy new technologies to support key business objectives.
